I might be a little biased, but I personally think that the women in this book are very strong, and they care so much for others. Always being there and showing their love towards their community members. It’s something I know that I can relate to, especially being surrounded by so many different women in my life. My grandmas, aunties, cousins, and friends, who all have different stories, and all who are their own unique individual
The Giver is, a novel by Lois Lowry, is about a boy named Jonas who lives in a futuristic society which focuses on “sameness”. This society is very organized, everyone has the same clothes, birthday, gifts, and food. No one is unique and no one makes their own choices. They live in a world with limited emotions, no love, no happiness. No one gets to make choices, no one takes risks. Lois Lowry is trying to warn her readers that if each person was the same, life would be dull and boring. Each person needs to be unique and make their own choices.
I would recommend this book because it shows all the aspects of life and never makes you bored like other books that waste so much time describing something little and doesn’t get on with anything. This book is appropriate for teenagers and young adults as it has some inappropriate things and ideas like the rape case. This book links to my life by showing how racism is a concerning case like what’s happening now in many countries in the world not just about race but about religion and opinions. It also links to my life when I do things early and I get in trouble for that even though I’ve done something right not
I wouldn’t recommend this book to the average reader. It is a bit hard to read because the author goes into so much depth that the reader could very often forget the main idea. It is a good, informative book but a bit drawn out.
It is scary when you don’t know anybody and have to try to make new friends. Many of your young childhood friends will stay with you for a lifetime. Today, I am still friends with many of my oldest friends. They have become like family. I want to say that this novel is a great way for people to see how somebody from a diverse population lives. It is a great book from the view of somebody living a completely different life than I have lived. I think it was very well written and is easy to read. This makes it a great teaching tool for children of younger age groups or college students as well. I read this entire book at one sitting because it kept my interest the entire time. I couldn’t wait to see what
I found the book to be a wealth of knowledge. The chapter titles were catchy and I was able to put visual images with some of things which were discussed in the book. In Chapter 2 Allies and Enemies, I automatically saw boys against girls; each group thinks they are better. However we are interchangeable.
There are only two genders exist in our society. Countless people in the story would have the same assumption. This typical social influential belief on gender was shown in the result of xperiment participation test. It is said in the text that “Almost everybody failed because it turned out almost everybody wanted a boy or a girl and not a Baby X at all.” This quotation is a proof that the idea of binary gender has already grown its leaf branches in those
The characters bring a riveting story to life when reading. Throughout the book, I felt emotions left and right for the characters and what they were going through. There is a lot of mystery and questioning that will be answered later in the book, but once its done, there are still many questions being asked. when I look for a book, that is something that stands out to me because I really want to read more, and when you have that reaction to a book, that means it was worth reading. I found this book remarkable because of the behaviors, characteristics, and decisions that the characters make, and I recommend this book to everyone, even if they don’t like to
In August of 2000, a pregnant woman gave birth to conjoined twins, Jodie and Mary. They were given six months to live, however, if the doctors operated it would be possible to separate them and save Jodie's life but it would mean that Mary would die instantly. The parents argued that they wanted to leave both alive even if it meant killing both in the end, but the Hospital argued that it would be in their best interest to save Jodie and perform the operation. The hospital won the court case and operated successfully on them inevitably saving Jodie, but Mary died. The first side to the argument is that we should save as many people as possible, which in this case would mean sacrificing Mary so that Jodie might live instead of letting of letting
I think the book appeals to everyone who has ever felt rejected, castaway, or uncertain whether their family or friends would accept them if they knew what really goes on under the surface.
What I liked most about the book was how she brought out the family dynamics of this extremely dysfunctional family without sugar coating it or making it seem better then it was. I think people that have suffered abuse or grown up in severely dysfunctional homes will really understand the family dynamics at work here and those that did not will come away with a new
Overall this book is good so far. Once I start reading it, I cannot put it down. It is a story that talks about the struggle of a young African-American girl named Shivana who is dealing with her poor lifestyle, going to school and being sexually active at such a young age. She is only fifteen and has been hooking up with a man who is married and has children. I found that this was so disturbing because I feel like Leroy (the married man) is using her for sex; he claims that he loves her but I am pretty sure he is doing it out of pleasure.
This book is mostly told in the dairy format and for some people that may be a turn off but I thought it was a very interesting way to look at things. We may not be inside the main character’s mind but in a way we are, we sense her desperation, we feel the doubt gnawing at her. We see as she gets worse and worse. We are also stuck in this situation where we pretty much get one POV which makes it all the harder to find out what is actually real.
